"I looked high and low for somewhere wonderful for me and my family to stay in Maui. I looked at hotels, rental homes, airbnb, condos, etc. I wanted something beautiful, in a great location, and with an ocean view. This place was all of that, and more! It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but it was worth it. It's obvious that the owners put a lot of work and detail into their condo - clean, beautifully decorated, furnished, and well-appointed! I loved that my girls had their own bathroom too. We also had a nice long balcony that overlooked the beach and ocean, which allowed us to watch whales surface in the mornings. What a treat!
The beach at the condo is a nice, soft-sand beach and usually pretty busy, but it's a great place for snorkeling, and we found it fun to search all the rocks for critters early in the morning, while the tide was still out. There's also a pool, but we didn't use it while we were there.
The condo is located in Kihei, which is a really great location to be in. The weather was perfect for us in January, and we had easy access to all of the places we wanted to go (surf lessons, zip lining on Haleakala, Old Lahaina Luau, snorkeling with turtles, Paia, etc). Some were farther than others, but we were right in town and near the highways, which made it easier to get there.
Our vacation was one of the most fun I've had in a long time, and waking up to the smell and sound of ocean waves, having a nice bed to sleep in (semi-firm, but comfy), and having everything we needed just made it that much better. And, it was pretty quiet most of the time. I'm an insomniac and I was able to actually sleep here, which was incredible.
Thank you for keeping such a beautiful condo! I would love to return as soon as possible!"
